Description

The 2nd World Conference on Sexual Differentiation and
Hot Topics in Endocrinology highlights the best science and
medicine on disorders of sexual differentiation and other current,
important topics in endocrinology and genetics, and will bring
together the top scientists and physicians from all over the world
who deal with disorders of sexual differentiation to create a
purposefully interactive environment in which new discoveries and
outstanding science over the past six years can be discussed.
There have been no other conferences dedicated to the broad
subject of sexual differentiation in recent years and will cover
topics currently in the news about the difference between
male and female sex.
This course will provide learners with up-to-date research
regarding medical and psychological long-term outcomes of
DSD, challenges in sex assignment of patients with DSD as well
as surgical, medical and psychological factors that affect the
care of their patients. Additionally, it will cover current topics in
endocrinology, including skeletal biology and epigenetics.
The course will equip physicians with the most cutting-edge
diagnostic tools and treatment strategies available to incorporate
into their daily practice and facilitate the understanding, diagnosis
and management of patients with DSD, ultimately improving
patient outcomes.
This course is directed towards endocrinologists, pediatric
endocrinologists, geneticists, genetic counselors and
psychoendocrinologists. It will also be of interest to reproductive
endocrinologists and urologists.
Upon completion of the activity, participants will be able to:
• Evaluate the newborn with ambiguous genitalia to
determine sex assignment
• Determine clinical and genetic diagnosis of the newborn
with DSD
• Effectively treat patients with DSD
• Provide accurate prenatal diagnosis and treatment of
congenital adrenal hyperplasia
• Diagnose hormonal hypertension
• Examine the endocrine function of bone
